2013-019/6 (LSF) Interactive Mathematics Text Project:
Abstract:
The Interactive Mathematics Text Project (IMTP) was designed to help improve mathematics education through the use of computer-based interactive texts. Funded by IBM, the National Science Foundation, and MAA, the IMTP was active from 1991 until 1996. These records come from the papers of Gerald J. Porter, one of the co-directors of the IMTP.
